I think most everyone is aware that September 27th was a very special celestial day as the moon was putting on a very special show. Yesterday’s post highlighted the infrequent combination of a Total Lunar Eclipse and a “Super Moon“. I also detailed my disappointment with our local weather and how the clouds prevented clear shots of the amazing “Blood Moon”. Well, to my surprise, I actually got one shot of the “Blood Moon” during a break in the clouds. I had setup my camera on automatic mode and stepped inside to grab my telescope to at least get a better eye-view. It was only this morning that I realized that I actually captured a decent shot. Not a very sharp image, but better than I expected.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark III using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L Lens set on 400mm with a 2x extender (800 mm). The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/11, shutter speed at 1/2 second and ISO at 800. Processing was done in Lightroom.
